Last week, the Ramapo Indian Hills administration recommended cutting three University Programs due to insufficient enrollment. Patch immediately began hearing from parents and students who were upset with the cancellation of the Communications, Theater, and Information Technology University Programs, starting with the incoming freshman class this fall.
Other people have voiced the opinion that specialized programs catering to fewer than 18 students — the key number for enrollment set by the board last summer — wastes resources that are already stretched thin.
We want to know: What do you think about the potential discontinuation of these programs?
If you or your child were enrolled in a University Program, what did you like, what did you not like about it? Did you or your friends enroll in a program only to drop out later? Did you or your daughter have your heart set on the Theater Program this fall?
